Artist's description:

From times immemorial, birds have been regarded as omens or forecasters of future events and also believed to have deep symbolic significance.

Several ancient cultures have held these winged creatures to symbolize the human soul and considered their flight to be representative of the soul’s journey in pursuit of higher knowledge. Additionally, the flight of birds makes them powerful metaphors for a range of human emotions and moods.

Birds are generally considered a link between the earth and the heaven, and symbolic of transcendence and eternal life.

With their ability to roam the earth as well as soar up into the sky, birds symbolize freedom. Meanwhile, their proximity to the heavens made them seen as messengers of the gods.

As a result, sighting different birds came to be regarded as good or bad signs, with their appearance being like indications from God.
